The shelf in the first picture is made of red oak plywood. You can choose the wood type, color and design as you like for your project. In case if you need more help understanding this project, you can refer the source link below. It discusses various items used, steps and tips and personal experience of the author who personally built a Zigzag shelf.

It might not be the easiest project in this list, but if you already have some experience with wood cutting and joinery, it won’t be any hassle at all. Thanks to the extremely detailed instructions it shouldn’t really be a problem even if you’re not very familiar with woodworking. This could actually be a great project for refining your woodworking skills as a beginner!
Another awesome thing about this coffee table is that it is also has a storage unit. So you can store drinks, and other stuff in the half barrel of your table and then close or open it whenever you need. Pete has also constructed a video for this tutorial for which you can find the link below. It illustrates the same process in a video guide that shows you the exact process to be followed while building this whiskey barrel coffee table.
A recess cut with a 1/2-in. cove bit lets you open doors with your fingertips. No hardware needed. Sometimes—like with this TV stand—that’s a sleek design choice. And sometimes, it’s a big money saver: I recently cut finger pulls in a whole set of laundry room doors and drawers. Compared with the cost of knobs (even inexpensive ones), that saved almost $100.
It is one of the easiest woodwork projects we are going to discuss today. Although it looks very easy to make, I still could not find any good tutorial on the internet that explains how to build this one. So I am here sharing an article link that gets the closest. The article explains how to make different kinds of DIY candle holders and what items you may need for the project.
In just a few minutes, you can turn those 2X4s into beautifully rustic picture frames. These little frames are perfect for holding your most precious images and they are all so very easy to make. You can use those scrap pieces of board from other projects and create a frame that is perfect for gift giving. Make them as simple or as fancy as you like.
There are lots of online sources for bun feet, but I wasn’t going to spend $30 or more when I could make my own for free. I gathered up some 3/4-in.-thick wood scraps, glued two layers together and cut out circles with a hole saw. After sanding the rough edges, I screwed each foot to a scrap of wood to hold it securely and rounded both sides with a round-over bit. A 3/4-in. round-over bit will cost you just as much as factory-made bun feet would. But spending on tools is always the right thing to do, even for a cheapskate.

This great pencil holder is perfect for your workbench. If you don’t have a workshop and just need something for the craft table or desk, you can totally cut this one down to size. This is the simplest pencil holder ever. You just measure out your 2X4, drill holes and then you’re all done. You could easily make shorter versions of this and paint or stain them to use on your desk.


Drill four 5/8-in.-dia. 1/2-in.-deep holes on the large disc—inside the traced circle—then use 5/8-in. dowel centers to transfer the hole locations to the underside of the small disc. Drill four 1/2-in.-deep holes on the underside of the small disc and a 1/2-in.-deep hole in the center of the top for the dowel handle. Glue in the dowels to join the discs, and glue in the handle. We drilled a wood ball for a handle knob, but a screw-on ceramic knob also provides a comfortable, attractive grip.
This coffee table is so unique and it’s really easy to build. You’ll need a few 2X4s which you basically stack, toggled to create a beautiful design, on top of a metal leg base. I love the look of this one. It combines that great rustic look with a wonderful 1960’s look that is perfect for any living room. You could use the bench style legs or wooden legs – or even build the legs yourself from the leftover pieces of your boards.
